Hancock Park Elementary School

Walk-A-Thon 2022

Wednesday, April 20



What is the Walk-A-Thon for Hancock Park School?

This school-based event helps promote exercise, health, and serves as a platform for an important school fundraiser for enrichment programs and campus improvements.

On Wednesday, April 20th, 2022, our students, faculty, and staff will walk up to one mile on campus. It will be a day of healthy fun, music, and school spirit!

How does the event raise money?

All students are encouraged to get donations by asking family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor them. Rather than being sponsored on a per-lap basis, students are sponsored for participation. Our goal is $100 per student, but any amount collected will benefit our school! All donations are tax-deductible. Donations can be made in cash, by check (made out to Friends of Hancock Park School), or online at www.hancockparkschool.com.  Please return all cash and check donations in the white envelopes to your classroom teacher by Wednesday, April 20th, 2022. DONATE NOW

**PLEASE NOTE: Donations made through the general fundraising page (link above) are only visible to administrators. You won’t be able to track these donations. You can only track your donations made through a personalized donation page. Your student will still get credit for all donations made for them through the general fundraising page. If you need updates on donations made for your student through the general fundraising page, please email us at EMAILFOHPS@GMAIL.COM. We are working on a fix for this.**

Students can also create personalized donation pages to share online.
